Yeah, Punisher SC is already done :)

As for translating to spanish, that would be great. Once I am done I will send the .doc if you want and then you don't have to reformat, just edit the words.

I have considered Dreadnought sized vessels. I have a few rules for them. I am likely going to add a section to the end about them and how to create them rules wise. However, there is really no standard consensus on what they should be and are usually so individualized to the player, I don't want to strictly codify them.

Alot of craftworld stuff already exists in BFG:R so check there. If it is there, I am not redoing it :). However, if I missed anything that exists in the fluff or a BFG mag/warprift someplace, please let me know, especially once doing ELdar.

As for the escorts, if you look in the file I have tried to make them as individual as possible, but some are still pretty close I know. However, they all exist in the fluff someplace, so that is reason enough for me! Plus, once I do fleet lists, I will try to cleverly use them there.

Sorry I haven't been able to work on it the last 2 weeks+. I have been moving/on vacation across the US. HOWEVER I reach my destination tomorrow, so I should be able to resume this week and definitely next week if not this week.

Fine, then lets just get in contact, my complains were no really complains, Actually the escorts are quite nice.

by craftworld I was meaning " craftworld" craftworld , not craftworld ships, it was on the old compendium.  ;)

Dictar was about to finish one this year and "someone" may bring another one to birth in the future.   ::)
I colaborate with a spanish blog called profanus40k.

Didn't take them to be complaints, and this project is more than welcome to constructive criticism  ;D

AH the actual craftworld. I believe there are rules for it in the BFG:R Eldar supplement. I'll double check. If not, it would more than likely go with the rest of the "dreadnoughts" since they are all so unique to each person that makes them.

This is something that seems to be on the fence. I really should design a generic Gloriana, HOWEVER there were only ever 20 of them. Furthermore, they all were Legion ships and were highly customized by each legion, which makes them hard to design in game. At least conclusively. Last off all, most all of them were destroyed, particularly for the Loyalists.

I'll probably knock out the core ships listed above then go back as do a special MEGA SHIP section with the Drednoughts, Gloriana Battleships, Phalanx, The Raptorus Rex and other ships like that.
You haven't read the latest Horus Heresy book by Forge World yet I see. There has been a bit of a retcon I guess since now the Gloriana class Battleship seems to be more common. The Word Bearers were known to have had nine of them (even though several of them belonged to other Legions previously).

Which one was this, as I have read all of them and don't remember this.

It is still something in 40k that doesn't exist anymore though, and something that I would need to treat carefully upon codifying. As well, there are already ships with names of famous glaorianas in the BFG:R Fleet lists.

The latest of Forge World's Horus Heresy books which deals with the war for Calth. :)

Looks really great. What program do you use for the drawings?

Nothing special. I am just taking existing drawing and using Microsoft Paint to cut and layer them together. Really easy. Then to remove any annoying colouration in the background and around the edges of the ships, I put them into Microsoft Powerpoint and use the "remove background" tool.

The document itself is just formated in Microsoft word. I use powerpoint to make the tables for ship stats too.

Ah. Good ol power point.  I also like the naming of a Rainbow Warriors strike cruiser. Didn't expect to see that.

So glad to see work continuing on this.  I follow the BFG FB group and the updated rules seem widely accepted. 

Last I followed, the updates to the Imps and Chaos for BFG:R seemed perfect.  I'm not sure what other races were completed/updated or if any changes were suggested/added to the core rules.

Here are the rest of the rules
http://afterimagedan.blogspot.com/p/as-any-of-you-know-i-am-supporter-and.html

None to the core rules, just fleet lists. Use FAQ 2010 for core rules.

I plan on finishing BFG:R once done with ASC 2.0 if Afterimagedan doesn't come back

IIRC There's only Planetary Defences to do. Could be wrong tho...:s

On his site there is orks and rogue traders to finalize
And there is alot of fomating and typos. The Inquisition one needs work in this regard too.
